Be convinced that we are loved

The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved
 - loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
- Victor Hugo

God loves us the way we are
but He loves us too much to leave us that way.
- Leighton Ford

"Be persuaded, timid soul,
that He has loved you too much to cease loving you."
- Francois de la Fenelon

Trust the past to God's mercy,
the present to God's love
and the future to God's providence.
- St. Augustine of Hippo

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
John 3:16

I thank You God because You created the world with all its beauty
and because You have given people a second chance
and that You also wanted this to do for me.
I thank You that You wanted to accept Your son Jesus Christ as atonement.
